Gary Friedman's Book on RX100M2 is out - Thinking about getting it
1

Hey all,

Just to let you know, Gary released the RX100M2 book, and in it, he definitely says low light performance is better on the RX100M2. It was in the sample

Anyhow, I think I'm gonna pick this book up. I love the camera and really just want to know everything about it.

I have Gary Friedman's book on the RX100 (original) and it is an outstanding piece of work.  He's incredibly thorough and, very unusually, does an outstanding job of describing how different settings interact with each other.  I have been buying camera guides since the early 1970s and Gary Friedman is in my opinion easily the best author in this genre.  Highly recommended.

Looks to be as detailed and thorough as the other Gary Friedman books I've read.    I'm sure it's worth the price.

I'd be interested if this book has enough new content to justify purchase if you already have Gary's RX100 book.

I have the RX100 book - a great read but I expect this will be essentially the same book with some additional content covering the additional features of the RX100M2.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

I made this list of M2 Menu Changes a while back, essentially for this reason.

Those are the changes, I imagine the extent of the differences in the books.

Cool, I just got myself a RX100M2, I think I'll pick up a copy of Gary's book. Is it available on Kindle do you know?

Holy crap this is old. It popped up, I saw only the latest post, I almost criticized Gary for being very late with his book.
